You can all keep telling me otherwise, but I get 9.7-9.8mbps directly through the modem.
I have just been downloading two TV programs via the router, 2.1GB total. It was flying then all of a sudden cuts off to around 40-60kBps. Limit reached and throttled surely.
You said that if you reconnect direct to the modem the speed goes back to normal so that must be the router as we do not selectively restrict your speed it is done electronically.
I take it you have noticed that I am actually a Virginmedia staff member and I work in Technical Support.
